In the Old American West, outlaw Rufus Buck (Elba) is sprung from prison by his gang, including Trudy Smith (King) and Cherokee Bill (Stanfield). The news does not sit well with cowboy Nat Love (Majors), who was forced to watch Buck kill his family as a child, and so he rounds up his own gang – among them Stagecoach Mary (Beetz), deputy marshal Bass Reeves (Lindo) and young gunslinger Jim Beckworth (Cyler) – to take revenge on Buck and his gang…
